THINGS I MADE THIS WEEK

A guitar made from stuff I was planning on throwing out. I'm in the process of moving right now, which always makes me think about the stuff I've got and the stuff I want to get rid of. I'm trying to not throw anything away this time (except for, y'know, trash), and just repurpose as much stuff as I can.

I've also started volunteering at a salvage shop that fixes up furniture / instruments / all kinds of weird goodies that people find at the dump. It's been nice to get my hands dirty, and I'll probably be getting most of my furniture for my new place from them.

Cardboard self-portrait made on break at work. Thought it was fun.

I purchased, and listened to your album. It's phenomenal. The songs are melodic, well written and beautifully produced. You have well crafted, well honed songs that resonate with me. I'm very excited to see what is to follow from you.

You have what it takes. Whatever that means and whatever that is... you have it.

As for me, I will not likely be recording any time soon. Too much work/travel. It sorta sucks. But... there are no shortage of past #hubskioriginalmusicclub songs to add to :) should you or ghostoffuffle feel so inclined. -GoF, you should be done with your program now, right? How are you?

I'll let you know how I'm doing when my MRI results come back...

Feels good to be out of school, anyway.

I don't like the sound of that. But I'm an intrinsically positive fella and will send those positive "vibes" your way, my friend.

Glad you are done with escuela, senor fuffle.

Edit: regardless of the results, I hope your physician has the good sense to prescribe you with the task of recording music. Best medicine there is.

Thank you TNG, I really appreciate your support.

Because I am an insane person, I am already starting to write the next album. It's going to be called "Jericho", and the key idea I'm focusing on is "precision" (point of information: the key idea for this past album was "constant forward motion"). I'm thinking of actually notating the entire thing before recording just to really nail the composition down and focus on perfect performance.

I'm happy with the album itself, but I'm honestly most excited about just having a first major project done. I feel a lot less pressure on whatever the next thing is now, and I finally have recent music to send to people for gigs and stuff.

Sad to hear that you won't get to record anytime soon, but just think of what you'll make when you finally have the time to record again!
